2011-2015 Program of the Government of the Republic of Croatia

From the chapter “New Public Administration” (pp. 57–60):

The development of information technology is significant for economic and industrial development, as it is for public administration reform. The introduction of new technologies into the activities of public administration will result in savings, as well in a more efficient and transparent operating of its services. (…) We will implement the government IT policy in the following way:

(…)

  • through the introduction of the open source software into public administration, wherever this is possible. This is a large and complex project which will be carried out in multiple stages, of which each will have to be carefully prepared. The principal objective is to introduce free software into public administration, thus ensuring its complete autonomy and at the same time stimulating the development of the IT sector, which would secure and maintain this entire system.
